Breast Cancer Survivor Paying it Forward as a Volunteer at Siona Health Care Boutique at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross
Free Survivorship & Caregiver Party planned for June 24 on the Silver Cross Hospital Campus
(June 17, 2016) — Over ten years ago, Cheryl Otsuka was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. During her regular monthly breast exams, she found a lump. What she felt was a non-cancerous cyst, however, underneath the growth was a large, stage-3 cancerous mass that already aggressively spread to her lymphnodes. She then had two lumptecomies in her left breast, 22 lymphnodes removed, which 17 were cancerous, and underwent a series of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. After these invasive procedures, she went to the Siona Health Care Boutique to learn techniques and tools to help prevent any future occurrences of lymphedema. Now a decade later, Otsuka has decided to help other cancer patients by sharing her time as a volunteer at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital.
